Chuck Blackburn | Founder

Wacky Non-Conformist

Chuck Blackburn has been a fan of bow ties all his life. For many years, he was a manufacturers’ rep serving the top clothing shops throughout the Midwest. Along with high end tailored suits, trousers, outerwear, shirts, and accessories Chuck carried fine neckwear… including bow ties.

He wore bow ties because they were more comfortable than the long ties everyone else wore.

Bow ties didn’t get in the way, they made a positive statement of individuality, and through the years he began to further appreciate their significant benefits over long ties. This was the beginning of the International Bow Tie Society and the birth of the essential book on bow ties…THE BOW TIE BIBLE!
